Once Halloween arrives, it’s difficult to get your bearings until after Christmas. So take 5 minutes today and plan for your IndieNext nominations. The IndieNext deadline for books released in January 2015 and beyond is November 4. It’s a little more than a week away, so you have plenty of time to submit your nomination.
The ABA makes nominating titles easy. Use this form on their website or click here to send an email. They recommend that you write conversationally, as if you were handselling to a customer. (And they even promise to take care of grammar and punctuation.)
I say “January 2015 and beyond” because the ABA will accept any nominations for books released after January. So if you just finished a book that will not be released until March, go ahead and nominate it. They’ll hold onto the nomination until the appropriate time.
